a christmas carol. i mean, someone. why? are they that bitter against religion? is that what it is? did they have a bad experience with organized religion? is it bitterness? >> well, i don't want to psycho analyze atheist activists who do prioritize that, but what i will say is that i think that the separation of church and state is in place to insure that the government does not privilege one religion over any other. it does not endorse any one religion over any other. so, my feeling on christmas displays in public spaces, in public schools is that if those are there, there should be displays for many different religions and many nonreligious -- >> i don't think many people have a beef with that. i don't think -- not in my crew. >> no -- >> nobody has a beef with that. >> i would hope not, yeah. yeah, exactly. >> i mean, we don't like, we don't like -- >> i mean, look -- >> i have to amend this. there are two things that have come up, one in the capital of washington state, in olympia. there were some atheist groups who said if you have a christmas tree, i'm going to put up an obnoxiou

who haven't made it in this country. >> yeah. there's no great religion that doesn't speak to this. at root, every great religion has some equivalent of the golden rule, some equivalent of the idea that i am my brother's keeper and my sister's keeper. some notion that even as we each take individual responsibility for acting in a responsible and righteous way, part of our obligation is to the larger world. and to future generations. you know, i think pope francis is showing himself to be just an extraordinarily thoughtful and soulful messenger of peace and justice. i haven't had a chance to meet him yet. but everything that i've read, everything that i've seen from him indicates the degree to which he is trying to remind us of those core obligations. and as i said in my speech yesterday, we live in a economy that is the greatest generator of wealth in history. we're risk takers, we're entrepreneurs, and we're rugged individuals. that's part of what makes us great. that's why we continue to be a magnet for strivers from all around the world. they think i'm not going to be held back
jerusalem and finding some arrangement so that jews can go to the holiest place in the jewish religion. jews are not allowed to go to the temple mount because the mosque is there. that is outrageous. faces of worship should be open to everybody who wants to worship. but israel does not allow jews to go out of respect for the muslims. tell me another country that behaves like that. your argument is more with the government of israel than with the palestinians? >> not true. >> it is true. if palestinians would accept the deal president clinton offers. the government of israel would not accept the offer president clinton offered. when he offered it, yasir arafat turned it down. some say that later he regretted that. >> you know who told him not to accept it? even though he changed his mind since? the head of the palestinians .old arafat not to accept it deal --re arguing for a >> do you know that for a fact? by asking,ind out would they accept the 67 deal offered by resin clinton at camp -- president clinton at camp david? why don't we do that? >> or the israelis, we will do that at the for him
embraced environmentalism as a religion they have a high priest the nobel laureate laureate, of the oscar winner of court you have to accept what he says with a knife faith and without logic. >> but some blindness to the fact you mention al gore i was surprised to see build the monster homes while preaching? the hypocrisy is monumental the 19,000 squa foot mansion in tennessee, a group could get a hold of his utilities was 20 times of the average american also mention at mont to cboe near zero pres house. john: are anyf those environmental activist not hypocrites? to some live the life? >> ed begley, jr., a darrell hill and that, they actually live a lifestyle consistent with what they preach but that is rare. the vast majority of celebrities take opulence to the highest level. john: ptt said turn your lights out but aso he has big houses. reason to be combined his video. >> i pledge to turn the lights off i would leave them on but i will turn them off. >> is the unaware of the hypocrisy? >> i just think he goes out on tour and has a carbon footprint a third-world nation with the idea th
africas are equal regardless of race creed religion. they are personified those ideals, they carried forward those ideals not only in word but in deed. to one where democracy and equality ruled. as mandela said, he wasn't going tgoing, he said i fight against white domination. i fight against black domination. i cherish a society where everyone is found equal. that goes to the heart of what the struggles were about. >> now in this time of grief and mourning for nelson mandela, the dangers are is that people are thinking about the man rather than what he stood for. and south africa today, 50 years later, are those ideals still there? do they need to be refreshed. >> we had a conference, and one of the speakers spoke about the moment of reckon. and then i heard yesterday that it's time for reflection. i think what you just said we are at that moment where we need to reflect. we need to reevaluate. we need to rethink and reconsider where we are today in relation to what the liberation struggle was about. yes, we are honoring and remembering the man. but more importantly we must honor wh
on either race, ethnicity, religion, preference, any of the signs of bigotry have to be addressed and not. and i think it just takes time. we're learning. we are still evolving. we are a better country today than we were 20 years ago, 30 years ago. we still have a ways to go. >> when you cast that vote in 19 yivenlgs you can look back and say within four years nelson mandela is released. four years after that, democratic elections, he becomes the president. did you think history was going to play out like that in 1986? did you think the struggle was going to take longer than that? >> i had no idea. in fact, i had no way of knowing how nelson mandela once being freed would react. my wife and i had the opportunity to visit robben island and stand in his cell and look out into the courtyard where he spent so many years crushing rocks. i felt a sense of rage welling up inside of me having think nelson mandela having spent so many years in prison could come out and walk tall and straight and say that he wanted to seek rec sill dwrags. that's an extraordinary statement i had no way of knowing w
the rugby world cup. >> rugby was the religion of the mainly white africaners. >> mandela walks on to the pitch sporting the team jersey to show his solidarity and support. far from forgetting the past, mandela wants to form a permanent record of the apartheid era, one which does not alienate sections of the population nor assign blame. he creates truth and reconciliation commission, as a way for the nation to move forward from its tortured past. >> he thought there would be a catharsis for the country for both white and black. the chairman of the commission is archbishop desmond tutu, the spiritual leader of black south africans had been a source of hope during apartheid's darkest days. the process allows for those who lived under apartheid and those who perpetuated it to come forward and speak of their experiences. black and white, oppressor, and o oppressed. >> the truth about the past. starting to come up. >> the truth about the past is often painful, difficult to speak. maybe even more difficult to hear. [ indiscernible ] >> i believe it made a contribution in preventing us
political religion known as jujay. >> talk about the timing of this. it's interesting that merrill newman was released as vice biden arrives in south korea. >> for the moment we don't know much about the negotiations that went into freeing merrill newman. the vice president by himself said he was not involved in the negotiations to free merrill newman. biden being in asia when you have the vice president, it's easy to make those kind of connections. he was in sea. right now south korea and north korea are not talking. the other country could have been china. it's not clear if they were pressed to help. >> talk about the relations with the united states and north korea. will this impact that relationship. >> for the moment we can't tell. it's important to keep m mind that kenneth bae is still being held in north korea. it's a major contention between the states and north korea. what do the north koreans want? they want to engage with the yates and have bilateral talks. the americans are not willing to do so unless the north koreans will give up their nuclear program. that is something they
abortion so much or the issues that have been dominating in my religion so often. but talking about the old christian principles. looking out for poor people. saying the lowest person you meet is in the worst position. that basic christianity. and i was taken, in fact, he's been paying attention to that. he sure has. >> right. the key thing is while the president's not a catholic, he is a christian. and when you listen to his speeches, when you listen to what he says whether it's health care or the economy, a lot of it is based in these, the ones who are struggling paycheck to paycheck, the ones near bankruptcy, the ones who are just trying -- they're playing by the rules, they're doing everything they're supposed to be doing and yet they're still being left behind. in an economy that's rushing faster than any of us can keep up with. so i'm not surprised that the president's paying attention to pope francis. and i'm not surprised that the president feels some sort of kinship with him because they both seem to be -- and i've never met pope francis, and maybe i will one day, but i think the t
, intersection of religion and politics, different side of our president and a lot of folks get to see. sometimes we see him as an avatar on our television screens, in the white house press briefing room or giving a speech. i have gotten to know him as the man who has vulnerabilities, is compassionate, has his own flaws but at the end of the day is a decent human being and been able to show a little bit of that side of him in the book in "the president's devotional". i would like to read a little bit of it for you. give you a taste of what some of the devotionals are about and open up too a couple questions and sign some books. one of the themes i often came back to in "the president's devotional" is really helping the president find a sense of joy and laughter and gladness in the midst of some difficult and deep and serious times. he is a pretty serious guy himself and i wanted to use the devotional to allow him to release a little bit and get to a place of joy. to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free silhouetted by the sea circled by the circumstances, with all memory and fai
. somebody a strong bailiff in their religion. i have a strong belief in my religion. it doesn't mean i'm going an extreme and do something violent that's what we have to deal with. we have to deal with the elements in whatever walk of life that will turn to violence and challenge not only societies that can't take care of themselves, but also us in our way of life. i think that's a difficult challenge that we're facing. i think as we look around the world and see societies and the underpinnings whey describe in some there's a sense of hopelessness. that's where we have to understand that. we have to decide whether we're going do anything about it or not. some cases question some case we can't. what we would like to do is help other nations and other regions of the world, certainly to be able to help themselves. that's what a global leader should do. i think that's what we try do all the time. as i see the military, with the military has been involved in over the years. that's with we try to do. it doesn't make any difference what their intkd. other questions? let me go income the back.

out of hand. you would not dismiss religion out of hand. religion has nothing to do with science, but it is something people believe very deeply. you have scientists arguing that the foods are safe and acceptable. on the other hand, you have people arguing on other grounds that even if the foods are safe -- and they are not willing to accept that they are -- but even if the foods are safe, they are not acceptable on other grounds. these two points of view go past each other with no meeting of the minds whatsoever. the academy was giving a vote to science-based look into genetically modified foods to say they are ok. other people would argue differently. would think labeling solve a lot of these problems than they should have been labeled from the beginning. let me say one other thing about that. the first company that was going to develop a genetically modified food was working on a gmo tomato. i have in my files at nyu copies of the label they intended to use on those products. a great big tomato with genetic modifications was right on the front saying this is the pride of calif
